2nd Edition 2010 Theme is Time

Melt \ Kathryn Maguire \ Ireland

An alarm clock is encapsulated in a block of ice, suspended by a chain. Originally performed as a sound piece, the melting water drips into a copper vessel , amplified by a contact microphone. The sound created resonates as if in a cave due to the acoustic characteristics of the copper vessel, while the alarm clock - an object from the everyday – is frozen and framed in a ritual where time passes yet stays still.


Kathryn Maguire is a visual artist based in Dublin, Ireland. She has a BA in Fine Art Sculpture and a MA in Art in the Contemporary World. She is a non-medium specific artist her working methodology varies with each project. These medias include glass, bronze, ice, cellotape, public grafitti, photography, text, video, sound and mirror. She has approached themes such as socio-urban history, psychogeography, voyeurism, exhibitionism, intimacy, seduction, loss and belonging.

If you replay the video, you will see the Rabbit to start dreaming and waking up all over again. Due to the process of creation in Flash, everything was randomized (characters, the background, colors, sequences, the sound, etc.).

17.01.1922 is a documentary about my grandmother‘s life. The body stretched in time, material condensed in a human cell. We have visited places that are very important for her: the home of her childhood, the old factory where she used to work, places and things she touched. Somehow the story is very universal...The parallel perception of those two senses I am considering as the most important in my work. Recently I think the life give us incredible opportunities to feedback your thoughts in a form of short film - so that I liked the idea to make it in a 30 sec, it is just like one thought..."


Marek Straszak is interested in all kind of audiovisual experiments. Studying in DigitalClass (UdK Berlin), he actually comes from the photography/film "zone".

"The film is a futuristic view of a man trying to buy more lifetime for himself from an ATM-like machine.”


I was born in Turku, Finland in 1976, and I'm still living there. I study film and TV production for the first year. Like almost everybody else, I have loved movies all my life. But after seeing Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle, I knew I wanted to be a film-maker. The versatility and the possibility of bringing many art forms under the same roof are the most intriguing things about film to me.

Twentyfourseven - time-lapse-like wrap up of a typical day at the office. Twentyfourseven's main objective is to shed a light on the ever recurring cycle of boredom and anesthesia in modern urban life. By doing so with a winking eye, it also ridicules all mankind efforts to overcome that cycle.

Time makes every static image dynamic is a short experiment using Screen Capture software. While people often complain about "information overload", I believe that quick close scrutiny of a single image can have similar effects to the overload that people describe. "Still" images are always scanned and moved about by our perceptions. It is simply a kind of equilibrium imposed by our consciousness that makes things seem "still" for any amount of time. In some ways this brief work illustrates the kind of time that is contained in my own scanning or reading of the image.

Prelude to a Symphony (in Sweeatch), by Dax Norman, is an experimental animation based upon Dax’s Painting, "Vincent, Mom, and a Frog.”


Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Dax Norman began drawing at a young age, and never stopped. Always looking for new ways of creative expression, Dax is a prolific painter and hopes to define what a 21st century artist can be. He currently resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife and daughter. He paints and creates games for IPhone. The animation explores Dax’s unique concept of double image animation, wherein multiple images inhabit the same contours. In the piece, you will see the face of Vincent Van Gogh, a frog, a horse, and personal iconography from the artist’s life.

"What happens when you leave everything behind to start a new life?” The girl frees herself from a bell and falls ... She leaves her memories and floats to the void. But it's not so bad out there. It's pure and beautiful. There she finds the source of the beginning and decides on her own to go on a quest to discover new places.

The film was made for Emmy’s first year in KASK, school of animation art in Ghent, Belgium. The assignment was to make a short movie about taking a step into the dark. Every frame was draw by hand and colored by computer.

This film is part of a series of videos with animated plasticize figures. This video circle is about the typical in human behavior, relationship and emotion - the big as well as the small ones. Usually I present my videos at art exhibitions, projected in a loop - no beginning, no ending. Although my figures change their position and develop themselves, they come at the same points again and again.

A man sprints for his train, drops his prosthetic arm and keeps running. Adapted from a Craigslist Missed Connection. Produced by the Collective Hunch. "We made a traditional storyboard, then a video "board", then we shot enough material for a 2-3 minute short. Then, I decided that 6 shots total would tell the story. The short was screened at the Aspen Shorts Fest last week and we are now considering a web series, adapting more Missed Connections Posts from Craigslist. It was a fun experiment! Thanks for the inspiration!!!”
